lets put it this way:

it will hash less then twice the hash of a 7970
it will cost more then twice what a 7970 does

do the math

do the math

the 6990 did 400MH better that the 6970

than how do you expect the 7990 to do worse than the 7970?

Estimate? The Devil 13 will have 2 BIOSs, that switch between 925 and 1000MHz. A 7970 at 925MHz does ~550MH/s, and at 1000MHz does ~600MH/s.

This puts the Devil 13 at 1.1GH/s, or 1.2GH/s. You could probably get to 1.3GH/s with an overclock. I doubt you could get to 1.4GH/s.

Me too!

The countdown to 7990 isn't over until I have my fleet upgraded and see shares accumulating at BTCGuild ~100% faster than before.

I'll give it 10years if it doesn't start losing money before that. About 1.5months ago i recommended, do nothing or get a 7970. After seeing how fast the difficulty has risen just from FPGA i'd say wait for an asic. Multiple competitors are coming out with them now so it seems real, and not some BFL scheme. A 7990 is gonna be useless unless your mostly gonna use it for it's intended purposes of not mining. I got a 7970 at the beginning of august, and it was worth getting it then plus i wanted a new gaming card. Get on the asic train if you wanna mine profitably. It should start in 1.5months. Anyways, when is this card gonna be sold?

Zero interest at that price. It was expected so i'm not surprised.

Considering 2 7970 GHz Editions are ~900, 1000 isn't THAT horrible. That said, I wont be getting one.

Not to mention how late they came out in the year. I bet they still hold their resell value for quite awhile. Interested in seeing someone watercool one and hash it to the max. Not interested in purchasing one.
